In the second of six explorations of the dark side, filth piles on filth as the 20th Century revs into high gear - and the stroboscoping world of the movies conceals and reveals the degeneracy and debauchery hiding behind the winning smiles of matinee idols and America's sweethearts.

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Sep 5, 2012

    Black Kiss II #2 is a comic book that will appeal to a select amount of readers out there, due to its mature themes and at timesintoxicating but grotesque subject matter. However, it's not a bad purchase. In fact if you're willing to give it a shot you'll find that this set of tales is a well-put-together comic book that's more than worth your time. Recommended.

    With the current controversy surrounding this series, this issue will no doubt be a “hot” item and it’s going price will rise considerably. Will it hurt or help Howard Chaykin’s series? Only time will tell. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Sep 5, 2012

    If you want erotica and I mean good erotica not this tasteless shit that I read; then read Manara Vol. 1 as that actually has a story and is erotic at the same time. This is just a dirty fantasy that takes place in a bygone era. Also this issues cover is practically the same as the last issue… change that shit up at least. Read Full Review

    Hardcore Chaykin/Black Kiss fans will probably find something to love here, but casual readers should seek out the original. Read Full Review

    First Comics News - Matthew Szewczyk Sep 6, 2012

    Its one thing to paint a vivid picture of the seedy side of Hollywood in the early 1900′s and it is another to show women orally pleasuring a donkey or showing a man having his testicles bitten off. Some of Chaykin's best work is when some things are left to the readers imagination; to reveal them in the boldness of print takes the darkness of the stories and leaves a poorer impression on the reader.

    Comicosity - Keith Callbeck Sep 7, 2012

    There were times I was shocked, times I was appalled, times I was just bored. At no time was I in the least interested by what he had to say, if there was indeed something said at all. I am very tempted to give this book aminus rating because it will unfortunately reflect on my next reading of the original that this travesty has hit paper. Read Full Review

    . . $3, 22pgs B+W, All ADs@back. . . Howard continues to bring his unabashed story of love and lust, for those who dont give a crap about cultural limitations. Not the art or story for most,as they can be difficult to follow. It takes some focus to get used to and we get a lot for our $3. Not easy reading, but well worth the effort.
